Born and raised in Milan, Italy, Tommaso completed his undergraduate studies in Economic and Social Sciences at Bocconi University. After an exchange semester at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, and subsequent graduation, he pursued a master's degree in Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy in Vienna at WU. Alongside his studies, he delved into research roles, notably at WU with Professors Ulrike Schneider and Corinna Dengler, collaborating with organizations like the Austrian Panel on Climate Change, Oxfam Germany, and the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna. Further engagements took place at SciencesPo in Paris under the mentorship of Professor Bruno Palier. In April 2023 he graduated with a comparative thesis on job guarantee policy experiments in Europe during the 2010s (Co-supervised by Momentum Institute under the Junior Fellowship Programm). Before joining the TU-IFIP team, he spent 5 months in Geneva with the International Labour Organization (ILO) focusing on skills policies, systems and digitalization. 

These varieties of experiences allowed Tommaso to specialize in different fields of economics and comparative policy, including social and labour policy, social ecological economics, Post-Keynesian economics, and the political economy of inequality.
